Liverpool Completely Rampant Before Newcastle Game

8:02 am, Thursday, December 3rd, 2015 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 16 Comments

Liverpool have now won seven of their last eight games in all competitions and the only one that broke the streak was when they lost 2-1 at home to Alan Pardew’s Crystal Palace just over three weeks ago.

And just to rub it in they dismantled Southampton 6-1 at St. Marys´ in the League Cup last night with Daniel Sturridge back from injury and he scored two first half goals.

Liverpool will be fielding a very strong side for their game at St. James’ Park on Sunday afternoon.

liverpool players saints 6-1

Don´t accuse Liverpool players of not trying or showing up for games

It´s not the game Newcastle really want after we have been taken apart by Leicester City at home 3-0 and Crystal Palace away 5-1 in the last two league games and are second bottom of the league.

New Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will know we have the worst defense in the league and have already conceded 30 goals in our first 14 games.

If our players don´t turn up on Sunday against a rampant Reds side it could be a cricket score and it looks like we could again be taken to the cleaners on Sunday.

Klopp´s Liverpool don´t just get two or three goals up and then contain the opposition – they go all out for the full 90 minutes.

But strange things happen in life and in football.

We are hoping for the best, but another annihilation could see under pressure Newcastle manager Steve McClaren in serious trouble.

And not too many fans are expecting anything but a defeat on Sunday.

    As I said earlier, we will lose again on Sunday against Liverpool. So has Mike Ashley done his homework on which Top Class Manager and Chairman he will recruit and what changes to player recruitment he will bring in ? Answers on a matchbox.

    You wouldn’t need a matchbox.

    Why isn’t there a “totally and utterly demolished” option ed?

    Lindi

    Not sure about mbemba at RB but anythings worth a try. To keep persisting with colamity and shirkoko is by definition, stupidity.

    Captain or not.

    We all know those two are undroppable though mate which makes it even more infuriating.

    If we are going to get anything out of this game we will need players with pride and passion, players who love the Toon, players who will put themselves in the line of fire to win the game.

    My Team:

    …………….. Firebug666…………..

    Lindisfarn….Transfer Sage….Ron Knee….Hibbit

    Average Contents…..Jail For Ashley….Toonfan8…..Jesper

    Charley in the Gallowgate……..Transfer Sage

    If you didn’t get picked your on the subs bench, better luck next week.

    haha, its a good line up, at least it would be draw, because we would kick them out of the SJP and I think in that game many of Liverpool players could be injured, if we would be quick enough to kick or throw them

    Well to be fair I wasn’t planning on it all being football, just wanting to make the ref do a bit of work.

    Mind you we would have to keep an eye on AC if the fat man was about.

  • 6 Jail for Ashley // Dec 3, 2015 at 8:36 AM

    If Willo starts in place of Mbemba then we know without a shadow of doubt that for whatever bizarre reason Mclaren is being ordered to play Collo

  • 7 Jail for Ashley // Dec 3, 2015 at 8:42 AM

    Great line up, but with Jib as owner, welshgeordie9 as manager?/coach, Ian Toon as psychologist and jane as the club doctor you’d be sinking fast.

  • 8 Tsunki // Dec 3, 2015 at 8:42 AM

    Willo starting at all would be a signal that the best players Steve can push out are not the players he wants to. it’s almost slapstick farce.

    “Oo-er missus and beggin’ your pardon,Vicar, but what are you doing in the cupboard with your trousers down?”

    ” I can explain…I’m trying to find a team to play against Liverpool.. “

    Like to see that team line up !!!!!

    be some shapes and sizes

    Anyway…

    Klipp Klopp gallops out of the TOON with booty

    Ain’t matter what eleven we put out on Sunday – we’ll get a good thumping.

    Going to be a painful 90 minutes

    could be 6 before half-time

    Maybe a absolute thumping ie double figures might shake the F**kin owner up into doing something proper as the Mick ‘the fat one’ Quinn wrote in the Chron.

    Problem is at the moment we are to big for Ashley to sell what’s he want quarter of a billion – when other teams are up for sale at half the price ie Villa

    So if not selling DO something sensible – get rid of the stupid scouting system, rid of Charmless, Rid of McLaren or send him upstairs to do the charmless role

  • 10 Tsunki // Dec 3, 2015 at 8:44 AM

    Looks like I didn’t make the cut. I’m the hba of the squad by the looks…

  • 11 firebug666 // Dec 3, 2015 at 8:45 AM

    JFA

    I had Jib in charge of the toilets, Jane making the tea, Welshie doing the washing up, and Ian Toon cutting the grass, I think that’s more than enough responsibility for them.

  • 12 welshgeordie9 // Dec 3, 2015 at 8:46 AM

    firebug666

    That’s a crap line up, that’s squad is way way to old, dads army springs to mind.

    Ha ha ha

  • 13 welshgeordie9 // Dec 3, 2015 at 8:49 AM

    So what’s the name of the team, I’ve got Initials ALFC.

  • 14 firebug666 // Dec 3, 2015 at 8:49 AM

    Welshie

    The point is mate, it’s better than what we have at the moment.

    How is you dad holding up? I know his operation is coming up soon, stay strong marra we are all with you.

    Hey Mr Kneejerk
    Yuo’re reaction should be
    “Jeez I knew there were problems at the Toon but not this bad , get it sorted Steve we’re right behind you”

  • 16 toontaff2 // Dec 3, 2015 at 10:23 AM

    No team has conceded 10.Manure beat Ipswich 9-0.
    Am expecting us to concede 10 and break a record!
